Approximately $175,000 for Terrell Municipal Airport was approved by the Texas Transportation Commission at its August meeting.
The funds will be used for planned airport improvements, which includes engineering/design for pavement and drainage improvements.
A project consultant will begin work this summer and project costs will be funded through the city of Terrell and TxDOT’s Aviation Facilities Grant Program, which preserves and improves the state’s general aviation system.
This year, TxDOT expects to provide approximately $60 million in funding for planning, constructing and maintaining community airports. Approximately 275 community airports in Texas are eligible for funding.
TxDOT funding will be provided for arrivals and departures from community airports in an account for more than three million flight hours per year and it will be provided for aircraft facilities for agricultural, medical, business and commuter use.
